Deconstructing Life: Consciousness

What Is the Purpose of Life? | Psychology Today

A lot of “science” keeps showing up in my news feed these days concerning the study of consciousness. I read every one of these articles, but I always (at least often) find them lacking in the sense that our world views consciousness as only an individual experience. I think, therefore I am. That’s fine, but what we’re missing here is a more important matter. Unfortunately, it’s anathema to science and is therefore lumped together, by science, with superstition, myth, and fantasy.

There are two forms of consciousness in the human experience. One is, of course, our private, individual consciousness, which includes our thoughts, moods, actions, reactions, motivations, behaviors, and more. The second, however, is the consciousness that both surrounds us and flows through us. This forms the very fabric of Life under the sun and consists of the consciousness of all who live, have lived, or await the birth of the flesh. It is the consciousness assigned to “God” in worldwide religions, but it is not a being separate from us. This consciousness is forever evolving with cultural and individual advancements and is experienced by all of us who live life under the sun. This is pure consciousness, the very life blood of planet Earth.

We are in the birth pangs of making space travel a regular (normal?) part of being human. When we travel in space, we must abide by the laws that govern life on earth. Otherwise, we’d die in the vacuum of outer space. Astronauts take the consciousness of the moment with them and therefore the rest of us along with them.

This suggests that all personal or private consciousness exist within this greater consciousness, which explains a great many naturally-occurring events that we tend to dismiss as happenstance or fantasy. I’m referring to things like reincarnation, impossible “memories”, déjà vu, feelings like you’ve been somewhere before, some dreams (but not others), “bad” apples, and even sociopathy and other serious mental conditions.

This is the consciousness that begs our study and consideration, especially in an age when individuality and agency tickle the ears of those humans confessing their form of uniqueness. Yes, we’re individuals who can determine our own agency, but we cannot dismiss the sameness of the human race. It’s the problem with our thinking that’s played the biggest role in the separation of humans based on religion or politics in the early 21st Century.

We are all a part of this forever and always have been. Deja Vu? More likely a breach of this reality. Reincarnation? Same thing. People who don’t understand this believe what they’ve been taught, that this life is where you prepare for the next, crudely identified as heaven and hell. What they can’t realize is that our addresses in the future will be the same as today, for heaven and hell are states of living under the sun. Those who’ve lived a life in hell, for example, bring that hell with them into the consciousness of all. Good and evil function in the same way and impact the culture through this ever-present living consciousness.

Fallacy is the great destroyer of consciousness.

Consciousness is locked into the moment. As a result, it exists in the unique position of advancing the culture despite what the fallacious earthly command and control mechanisms demand and need for the maintenance of their power. Our politics, for example, may wish for better days (for them), but in so doing, they draw attention to their self-centered demands. For example, consciousness knows that abortion has always been a choice of the one who carries the child and therefore, that attempts to control the rate at which we murder our children in utero cannot compete with the consciousness of our planet leading us as a whole to stop killing our own children. The image of women entering abortion clinics for convenient birth control have been blown apart by the stories of women who struggle greatly over the matter. It’s inhuman to describe these women as gleeful for getting rid of something unwanted. No, our consciousness has already moved on, which is why continued efforts to support the institution of “Pro-Life” are the equivalent of beating a dead drum. Next?

Consciousness is bound to time and space and moves in time under the sun. The past is not conscious, nor is the future. Life under the sun, therefore, begins with individual consciousness and is automatically a part of the consciousness that sets the parameters of what’s allowed under the sun. There can be no logical argument against this. Are fetuses conscious within the womb? Ever read “The secret life of the unborn child?”

How do Monarch butterflies return from North America to a specific set of trees in Mexico to overwinter? They are a part of the Earth’s consciousness and know the way via those who’ve been there before. It is impossible for science to view such thoughts as viable, despite the reality of Occum’s Razor.

Consciousness cannot travel backwards or forwards. This is why time travel is a fantasy, for your own consciousness is bound to all consciousness, and in order to travel backwards or forwards, we’d be locked into the consciousness of that time, so why travel at all? People all the time say they’d love to go back with what they now know, but that isn’t possible, for consciousness evolves as life advances. A 50-year old mind has adapted to the contemporary moment, but none of that can move forwards or backwards. It simply evolves in place, because that mind has consumed 50-years of data. One year equals one-fiftieth of his life, and he could not survive intact, for example, when a year equals only 1/25th of his life. All of the knowledge and wisdom gained by age 50 simple cannot go back to his point at 25, so again, why the wish to go back and relive all of it? You can’t even tell your past self to enjoy life more, because that knowledge will likely have been gained during years 26–50.

What an incredible gift it is for each of us to live under the sun, but we come from consciousness and to it we shall return.

When we learn things “naturally,” where do you think that comes from, if not the corporate consciousness of all humanity? An infant gets frightened and will not venture out onto a platform with a glass bottom, for she knows she might fall and hurt herself. She senses the concept of falling, because those types of consciousness have been around since the beginning. They are hard to ignore. We call these things “instincts,” but where are they embedded except the consciousness she’s a part of.

Are newly discovered civilizations in the Amazon, for example, a part of this advancing consciousness? Absolutely, because we must admit we know very little about the spiritual nature of such simple human beings. Moreover, we dare not judge such, for the quickest path away from the moment is to lord oneself over others, and this is one of the fundamentals of the consciousness being discussed here.

This group consciousness serves as a governor of human behavior, and as it gets infected with radical selfishness, it becomes burdensome to everyone. Have you ever walked into a room of loving people so filled with life that the room itself seems to almost float? Sensitive people know of which I speak. Likewise, the feel of that room can be so dark that they’ll have to leave quickly or be consumed by it.

This consciousness functions at the subconscious level for most of those who’ve entered animal bodies under the sun. Like God, it has a one-way connection to human kind, but it is observable by those who believe it exists. Most people can’t, won’t, or don’t, and so it appears to them as if we’re alone and not connected. The contemporary desire for agency is found here, and while that’s fine under the sun, it’s limiting when it comes to a greater understanding of life.

The most exciting thing about all this is that consciousness is slowly evolving as we gain knowledge and wisdom, No matter how much political pressure is applied to stop this evolution — after all, the status quo doesn’t want any part of this evolution — it’s just not going to stop the advancement of the human race. If consciousness is evolving, then what is to be our response but to evolve along with it?

I realize that what’s presented here is counterintuitive and may be considered foolishness to those who prefer a more scientific perspective, but that’s exactly why we need to explore alternative explanations for life under the sun. Frankly, the hope for the human race is going to require innovative thinking that doesn’t accept the limits of science as ultimate truth.
